With fall approaching, here are some tips to help you cycle during this time.
Tips for cycling in the fall
Even front and experienced riders see a different battle when riding in the fall.
Autumn can be a very nice time; one minute you’re riding in fall clothes because it’s cold, the next you’re sweating because a storm is coming.
Whether you’re a beginner or a cycling veteran, these five tips will get you started on your fall bike ride.
1. Stay dry at all times
Fall weather refers to rain, which means moisture. But don’t let the rain stop you from cycling.
Your cycling adventure doesn’t have to end because the weather is changing and it could rain any minute. There are ways to stay dry even in the rain.
Good rain gear will help you stay dry even in the heaviest rain showers. Rain gear is waterproof riding gear that should include a waterproof helmet with visor, a waterproof jacket or jacket, waterproof boots and gloves.
Now we know it’s rainy season and you may not be able to predict when it’s going to rain because even the weather forecast isn’t always 100% accurate. It is recommended to have these tools with you when you travel. To make it easy for you, you can buy a Himiway electric bicycle travel bag.
In the Himiway Travel Electric Bike Trunk Bag you can store things that can hold your cycling equipment for rainy weather. This gives you easy access to your rain gear in the event of a sudden downpour.
Himiway carrying bag is compatible with all Himiway e-bikes. It has a large capacity and an extension of 25L. It is designed to protect your belongings as it is fully lined and completely waterproof. It has a quick-release Velcro closure making it easy to install and secure on bikes.
With the electric luggage carrier bag from Himiway Travel you can be sure that your belongings are safely protected.
2. Make sure there are no slippery spots on the road.
Of course the road is smoother when it is wet. This means you have to drive carefully and watch out for extra slippery ruts.
Watch out for piles of leaves, painted lines and stretches of road where you can see oil and gas. This stuff gets smoother when wet.
One way to protect yourself from slippery roads is to make sure your bike is wet. Himiway e-bikes, especially mountain bikes like Himiway Cruiser and Himiway Zebra, are perfect for fall rides.
They have a battery capacity, engine power and fuel consumption that make it possible to drive even in rainy weather.
3. Provide a clear vision
Traveling without a clear vision is bad news. You must have a clear view when walking.
This can be a bit tricky if you’re driving in the fall. Sometimes it can be windy and driving without protective gear can get too much air and dirt in the eyes.
When it rains, water can get into the eyes. It is uncomfortable, annoying and can even cloud your vision.
To avoid this, you should either buy glasses that prevent water from getting into your eyes or a helmet suitable for rainy weather, such as the Himiway cycling helmet.
4. Be visible
It is important to be visible regardless of the weather conditions you are driving in. This is especially important in rainy weather. This is because it usually gets cloudy and dark when it rains. This is where visibility comes in.
When traveling in the fall it is best to be visible to other road users, especially when it is raining and the clouds are dark
